    Where would you suggest Putin be stopped, or should he be allowed to do as he wishes?

    Re: What would you do with our defense spending?

    The USA puts more resources into the military than any other nation in the history of the world. Over a ten year period I would cut military spending by about 2/3 and close most of our overseas military bases and facilities and close many of our domestic bases and facilities. We have well over 300 military bases, plus dozens of aircraft carriers and submarines and 7,700 nuclear weapons. We can destroy the whole planet several times over.

    Re: What would you do with our defense spending?

    Cut it by at least half and use that money to pay down the debt.


    Of course, "cut it by half" is half more than I'd be willing to spend on a lot of things...

    Cutting it in half sounds great...to be sure. And the 20-30 million military, civilian, contractor, support, and other personnel...well...its not like unemployment would be a problem. To say nothing of the devastation to local economies across the country.

    'cutting' isnt a simple proposition. It can be done...but not without some real thought.
